1 Improving Turfgrass Through Research Texas X Kentucky Hybrid Bluegrass Rhizomes on young spaced plants Deep rhizomes contribute to turf recovery Moves Bluegrass usage further south Top rated for shear strength NTEP

2 Improving Turfgrass Through Research Texas X Kentucky Hybrid Bluegrasses Blend with tall fescues – Heat and drought tolerance –Excellent rhizomes for sod strength Blend with Kentucky bluegrass – Select Kentucky bluegrass varieties with improved heat tolerance for best blend –Similar growth form and appearance Blend with Texas X Kentucky - future – Select varieties with different genetics

3 Improving Turfgrass Through Research Bandera Texas X Kentucky Hybrid Bluegrass Bandera Improved seed germination High heat tolerance Active summer growth Stress tolerance Good turf quality

4 Improving Turfgrass Through Research SR 5130 (SRX 51G) Chewings Fescue Active summer growth - heat tolerance Excellent resistance to Summer Patch, Leaf Spot, and Dollar Spot Excellent turf quality under high, medium and low maintenance conditions Best density in stress sites High seed yields

5 Improving Turfgrass Through Research SR5250 (SRX 52961) Strong Creeping Red Fescue Highest heat and drought tolerance - Maintained stand OK and Central Valley of CA High performance wear and low cutting - WI trial Excellent turf quality under high, medium and low maintenance conditions Excellent resistance to Summer Patch, Leaf Spot and Dollar Spot Will persist in all blends, all locations without overdominating turfgrass mixture
